Product Details

The Scinomix VXQ is a bulk tube handler that eliminates hand loading of tubes into racks to provide even more time savings. The Scinomix VXQ  is compatible with a range of tubes from 0.5 ml to 15 ml (the collar of the tube must be wider than the body of the tube). This flexible design allows the user to easily change tube types with the touch of a button.

The Scinomix VXQ was developed to be paired with the VX Series tube labeling systems, the Sci-Print VX2 and the Sci-Print VXL. Both of these systems have a variety of functions including printing and labeling, filling, uncapping/recapping of screw top lids, and barcode scanning.

An optional 2D barcode scanner can be added to the systems for verification or to reprint the barcode on the label. When the VXQ is paired with one of these systems, it can handle 200-300 bulk tubes per hour.

Features / Benefits

  • Handle multiple tube types with same system

  • Works with a variety of vials ranging from 0.5 mL to 15mL

  • Touch screen control

  • Easily create, store and change multiple tube definitions

  • Retrofits to existing machines in the field

  • Increase walk- away time

  • Increase productivity and efficiency

  • Compact footprint saves valuable space in the lab

  • Eliminate human error

  • Eliminate tedious and time consuming tasks

  • Reduce repetitive injuries

            XL100 – VIAL HANDLING INSTRUMENT

            XL100 – VIAL HANDLING INSTRUMENT

            Automates re-array, sample vial weighing, capping, decapping, vial labelling, and data collection for common laboratory vial sizes.
            The XL100 Vial Handler is a bench top vial sorter that works with a wide range of test tubes and vials. XL100 options include an automated sample balance and tube decapping stations. The XL100 modular design allows for an upgrade path to automate liquid handling tasks.

            XL100 Vial Handling System

            XL100 (or XL200) Series Vial Handling Instruments are robotic pick and place vial handling systems used by drug discovery and biotech laboratories.  Typical applications include sample receipt processing, vial weighing for compound dissolution, tube weighing for biotech agricultural groups, print and apply vial labelling for all types and sizes, walk-away vial capping and decapping systems, and liquid handling for the widest array of vial based sample processing with built in sample transfer verification. 

            The XL Series can be manufactured with the various modules to meet your group’s automation needs.  These include a linear barcode reader to decode barcoded labels wrapped around a vial, a 2D barcode reader for data matrix barcodes on the bottom of vials, an automated balance for weighing applications, a decapper/recapper for screw cap vials, an automated capper for walk-away capping of screw cap vials, an electronic pipette for liquid handling operations, rack transfer station, and the new XL LabelPro for print and apply vial labelling. 

            Vial processing modes include work list, data collection, and tare/gross weighing.  For example, the XL software processes vials and collects 1D barcode and weight information.  The collected information is then provided in the form of a user defined output file (.csv or .txt).

Features auto-load and auto-eject pipette tips. For sample volume up to 1mL. Optional: pair with customized thermal blocks for sample temperature requirements.
